The Coup Plot – Digby’s Hullabaloo:

I’ve lost count of how many books have been published at this point about Donald Trump’s final days, but I’m glad that the staggered release of them has helped to keep the event fresh in people’s minds as each one offers up something that we didn’t know before. With the January 6th Committee selectively leaking information and the prospect of public hearings at some point in the near future, it’s still possible that the whole thing won’t be completely swept under the rug before the election in the fall.

I am usually pretty critical of the “I’ve got information that the public really ought to know, but I’m going to save it for the book I’m writing” tactic that seems to be increasingly common among big-name political reporters.

In this case, though, I think Digby might be right. The consistent drip-drip-drip has kept this stuff in the news for months now.

On the other hand, maybe the public’s short attention span means it all just gets absorbed piece by piece and then forgotten.
